Lieutenant Governor’s Respectful Citizenship Award
This award recognizes those who have developed a project or activity that demonstrates leadership and commitment to creating safe and inclusive spaces in schools and communities in Nova Scotia.
Twenty-two awards can be given annually:
- two within each Regional Centre for Education (RCE) and Conseil scolaire acadien provincial (CSAP),
- two in the Mi'kmaw Kina'matnewey (MK) board, and
- two African Nova Scotian students from across the province.
We recognize Nova Scotia's rich diversity and strive to reflect it in the selection process.
- One will be an individual student award, and the other will be a team award for two or more people.
- An additional two awards can be given if a student is a successful applicant who is homeschooled or enrolled in a private school.
- Homeschooled students have to be registered with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (EECD).
To be nominated, one must be a registered student in Nova Scotia and enrolled in a grade from Primary to 12.
The nomination deadline is Friday, February 24th, 2023; and the Lieutenant Governor will present the awards on Thursday, April 6th, 2023.
